Example

The code below demonstrates how you can set, restore and obtain the text that is shown under the indicator's icon.

JavaScript, JScript

function IndicatorDemo()
{
  // Shows the indicator icon
  Indicator.Show();
  // Pushes text to the indicator
  Indicator.PushText("Hello!");
  // Delays the script execution for 2 seconds
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text);
  
  // Pushes new text to the indicator
  Indicator.PushText("New indicator text.");
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text);
  
  // Restores the previous indictor text - "Hello!"
  Indicator.PopText();
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text);
  
  // Clears the history of the indicator's user messages
  Indicator.Clear();
  
  // Hides the indicator icon
  Indicator.Hide();
}

Python

def IndicatorDemo():
  # Shows the indicator icon
  Indicator.Show()
  # Pushes text to the indicator
  Indicator.PushText("Hello!")
  # Delays the script execution for 2 seconds
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)
  # Pushes new text to the indicator 
  Indicator.PushText("New indicator text.")
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)
  # Restores the previous indictor text - "Hello!"
  Indicator.PopText()
  aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)
  # Clears the history of the indicator's user messages
  Indicator.Clear()
  # Hides the indicator icon
  Indicator.Hide()

VBScript

Sub IndicatorDemo()

  ' Shows the indicator icon
  Indicator.Show()
  ' Pushes text to the indicator

  ' Delays the script execution for 2 seconds
  Call aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)

  Call aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)
  
  ' Restores the previous indictor text - "Hello!"
  Indicator.PopText()
  Call aqUtils.Delay(2000, Indicator.Text)
